The Orange County Board of Supervisors is being pressured to act on recent anti-Asian incidents that have taken place during the pandemic, including at a Garden Grove high school.

More than 200 Asian Americans and supporters are demanding in a letter that the supervisors pass a resolution condemning racist acts.

One of the incidents cited involves fliers posted on the front door and car of an Asian family in Huntington Beach. They read "Get out of our country" and also "You guys are Chinese Viruses."
